Henry Troemner founded Troemner over 160 years ago in 1838. The company started
as a manufacturer of scales and weights in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
From the beginning, Troemner earned a reputation for being a manufacturer
with high quality standards. In 1856, Troemner received a contract
to make scales for the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. The success
of this contract led the company to expand its product line of
scales to include bankers' scales, precision weighing equipment
for jewelers, prescription scales for pharmacists, and laboratory
scales and balances for chemists.
By the time
of Henry Troemner's death in 1873, the Troemner name had become
internationally respected in the commercial world of weights
and balances. The company was inherited by Henry Troemner's
sons and remained a family business for three generations until

In 1955, Mr. Laird Park purchased the company from the Troemner family.
At this time, the company needed to be revitalized to return
to its former glory. Mr. Park brought his knowledge, experience
and enthusiasm to this venture to bring Troemner into the 20th
century. Under his direction, the balance and scale product
line was updated to meet market demand and the production of
precision weights began in earnest. In 1958 Troemner published
its first comprehensive catalog of standard weights. Troemner
next offered its own weight calibration service for customer
weights. This important service is one that continues to this
to updating Troemner's products and services, Mr. Park rehabilitated
Troemner's facilities. In 1963 Troemner moved to 6825 Greenway
Avenue in Philadelphia. At this site, Mr. Park expanded and
increased efficiency in a modern manufacturing facility for
During this time Troemner entered into the field of manufacturing laboratory
equipment. This product line started with a series of magnetic
stirrers, and grew to include hotplates and combination hotplate/stirrers
of various sizes. As Mr. Park continued to grow Troemner's customer
base, he realized there was a need in the industry for gas cylinder
safety products and he added those items to Troemner's growing

In the 1990's,
Troemner began the process of achieving ISO 9001 certification.
Troemner was one of the first companies in the Philadelphia
area to earn ISO 9001 certification in 1993. Shortly after this
milestone, Troemner began the process of gaining accreditation
of its mass metrology laboratories by the NIST administered
National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP)
and its United Kingdom equivalent, United Kingdom Accreditation
Service (UKAS, formerly known as NAMAS). By obtaining accreditation,
Troemner is able to provide our customers with certificates
that meet or exceed the strictest recognized standards.
Mr. Park officially retired and Mr. Abele who joined Troemner
in 1972 became Troemner’s new owner. In May 1999, Troemner
moved across the Delaware River to Thorofare, New Jersey.
years Troemner has continued to expand and increase its expertise
in manufacturing and measurement capabilities. Troemner relocated
to Thorofare, New Jersey in 1999 to a state-of-the-art specially
designed corporate headquarters, which was planned by a team
of employees, engineers, and architects to specifically meet
the customer’s needs for high precision calibrations.
Troemner’s laboratories provide customers with all the
data and traceability information they need for their calibration
items. The Calibration Laboratories’ physical conditions
and state-of-the-art equipment enable Troemner to produce measurements
with very small uncertainties for its customers. Troemner is
not only committed to quality calibrations, but to the product
itself as evidenced by the introduction of a unique material
used to manufacture weights called Troemner Alloy
8, a specially blended stainless steel with very low magnetic
properties. Troemner is committed to achieving the highest levels
of accreditation for all of our calibration services which include
magnetic susceptibility, mass
density determinations, pipettes,
thermal mass flow, temperature,
and electrical, time
and frequency. We continue to research and develop new calibration
services to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
Manufacturer of Laboratory Equipment
40 years Troemner has been a leading provider of laboratory
equipment. As the needs of our customers have changed, we
have added to our product line. Today, Troemner’s diverse
laboratory equipment products include Labjaws
clamps, various hotplates,
laboratory mixers, and gas cylinder
safety products. Troemner strives to provide our customers
with exactly what they need to run their laboratories efficiently
